Title: Memoirs of a Geisha

Author: Arthur Golden

I will admit that I had no clue what a geisha even was until I read this book. I read this around the time the movie version was released. Even better was that I found this at the library book sale. You can’t go wrong buying the book by the inch instead of cover price. Personal victory.

For a complete work of fiction the story is as real as the country it takes place in. The lies and deceit of those who are greedy and prey on the innocence and less fortunate. The tearing apart of a family and the lengths a girl will go to find real love.

This book was worth the read and the movie was worth the viewing. đŸ™‚
